Introduction and History

Located in the heart of the (alternate-universe) Southern Plains, Kendallsford serves as a regional hub for the 10-county Comanche Valley Region. Founded in 1879 by Roger M. Kendall, Kendallsford began as a humble ranching settlement on the plains. 15 years later, farmers discovered that the soil of the Comanche Valley provided for bountiful harvests, and the dominant mode of agriculture shifted from cattle ranching to the production of grains. The fluvial soils alongside the Comanche River also allowed fruit and vegetable farming to flourish.

On April 26, 1991, an F4 tornado struck North Kendallsford, narrowly avoiding a direct hit on downtown. The tornado killed 23 people, injured 228, and caused $55 million in damage. As it continued east, the same tornado also produced F2 damage in the towns of Sylvania and Morrisville before lifting.

Climate

The Kendallsford region has a humid subtropical climate (Köppen climate classification: Cfa) with hot summers and mild winters. Approximately 30 inches of rain fall per year, although extreme drought conditions can occur in some years. Severe thunderstorms and tornadoes can occur any time of year, but especially in the period from March to May.

Average temperatures by month (in Fahrenheit):

January: 56 / 31

February: 58 / 33

March: 70 / 44

April: 78 / 55

May: 84 / 57

June: 90 / 64

July: 98 / 73

August: 97 / 71

September : 88 / 61

October: 77 / 53

November: 64 / 42

December: 59 / 38

Enough with the introductory information; let's take a look at the city of Kendallsford!

For a city of approximately 40,000 people, Downtown Kendallsford seems larger than the area population might suggest. It is important to remember that Kendallsford serves as a regional hub, providing jobs and services to the entire Comanche Valley Region.

Love it! I currently have a city journal featuring a 'regional hub' in Iowa. It serves as a hub for 9 counties. I want more pictures!!!
